gthiemonge#topic Announcements16:02
gthiemongeI don't have announcement for this week16:02
gthiemongeRC1 for Xena was last week, we don't expect to have another RC16:03
johnsomCool, I don't think I have anything this week either.16:03
gthiemonge#topic Brief progress reports / bugs needing review16:04
gthiemongeI'm still working on the fix for member networks with multiple subnets that rm_work started16:05
gthiemongeI'm trying to get more control on the creation of the port for members16:05
gthiemonge(we delegate this work to nova/neutron, and the result seems inconsitent - some unnecessary subnets are plugged)16:06
johnsomI have been doing reviews mostly.16:06
gthiemongebut creating ports requires changes in the flow (we need to explicity delete them, when deleting members or when triggering failover)16:07
gthiemongeso I think the patch will be bigger :D16:07
johnsomYep, it's a big one I'm sure. But an important one16:07
gthiemongeI may try to split it into multiple patches, but I don't know if that makes sense16:08
johnsomYeah, sometimes you can, sometimes you can't.16:09
gthiemongeor you don't want16:09
gthiemonge#topic Open Discussion16:11
gthiemongeany other topics?16:11
johnsomNothing from me. Thanks for taking on that beast of a task for member subnets16:12
gthiemongemaybe one last thing:16:12
gthiemongeI proposed to backport the "generic interface management" patch to wallaby16:12
johnsomAh yeah. I will take a look. That is a big one too16:13
gthiemongeI consider that it's a fix for "modern" distributions that dropped old fashion way to configure network16:13
gthiemongebackport went smoothly16:13
gthiemongemy concern is that people may think that it's a new feature16:14
johnsomWell, it fixes some issues we have had with the distro network management tools not behaving correctly.16:15
johnsomLike "already exists" issues when doing the ifup16:15
gthiemongemy other concern is that this commit fixes an issue that someone fixed in an open review:16:15
gthiemongeso we may have to add this last patch on stable branches that will not have the "generic iface mgmt" stuff16:16
johnsomHmm, yeah. You could also give co-author on the wallaby for the author of the other patch.16:17
gthiemongeso I don't know if we want to backport the huge patch to all stable branches16:17
gthiemongejohnsom: oh yes16:18
johnsomYeah, I guess the question is of need. Does anyone need it on the other stable branches. For the most part, the older distros work. I guess it's also a question of will it make other backports harder, etc.16:19
gthiemongegood point16:19
johnsomI know we need it for wallaby and newer for sure. It's going farther back I'm not sure about.16:20
gthiemongethe fix for member networks with multiple subnets needs that patch16:20
johnsomYeah, so that may push us to backport farther.16:20
gthiemongeOk, I'll propose the backports (and will add the co-author line) and core reviewers will give us their feedback if they think it could be an issue16:22
johnsomSounds like a plan16:22
johnsomI will have a look at the wallaby patch after the meeting16:22
gthiemongethanks johnsom 16:23
gthiemongeanything else?16:24
johnsomNot from me16:24
gthiemongeOk! Thank you Folks!16:25
